How a digitized ‘nose’ can help fight food waste

Volunteers at the "Banques Alimentaires" (Food Bank) move palettes in their warehouse in Arcueil, France, May 26, 2015. France is cracking down on food waste with legislation banning supermarkets from destroying unsold but edible food on pain of fines and even jail sentences. The new bill is to be voted on by France's lower house of parliament on May 26 and then sent to the Senate.   REUTERS/Philippe Wojazer - RTX1EKSV
